Altera video system solutions consist of multiple components to help you create the most dependable system design and complete development quickly as listed below:
Altera video design framework—This is a combination of IP cores, interface standards, reference design, and system-level design tools that are developed to enable a plug-and-play video system design flow.
Video and Image Processing IP Suite—This is a collection of MegaCore® functions that you can connect together to design and build video systems. In addition, designs built using the Altera video design framework are open, allowing you to easily replace an Altera IP with your own custom function block.

Altera video reference designs—Reference designs are created by Altera as well as our partners and built using the Altera video design framework. This substantial suite of image format conversion reference designs are hardware verified and available immediately to serve as the starting point for your application.
Altera DSP and video development kits—Development kits are also designed by Altera and our partners to help you prototype your video system design. These kits support a range of video I/O formats, such as serial digital interface (SDI), Advanced Switching Interconnect (ASI), digital video interface (DVI), high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI), composite video, and VGA, and are based on our highly regarded Stratix®, Arria®, and Cyclone® FPGA families.
